Banana coffee is located in an old community near the core block of Qianjiang New Town in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. We try to use strong modeling language to break the tranquility of the original community and create a conflict with the original market state. The project covers an area of about 60 square meters, and the design emphasizes the concept of “dynamic and static / separation”: five curved steel plates are inserted into the building in a dynamic way, and the boundary between the outdoor and indoor is blurred. Courtyard:Outdoor seats and a coffee table. One of the metal plates is inserted into the room from the outside to combine the indoor and outdoor organically.

(the designer assumes that they are fallen aircraft wrecks, breaking the original solidified community life state) they exist in a way of deconstruction and separation, and become the core visual point of the whole design. The original complete metal plate was extruded and cut into five shapes, of which three curved metal plates were arranged at the entrance, wrapping the door of the original building, in order to attract the attention of people coming and going. The partition wall on the left side of the entrance is made into a three circle mirror by the designer, which becomes a clock in point for each customer to meet their online social demands.

The seating area is arranged around them. The designer sets the different forms of the artistic installation that each customer pays attention to from each angle while tasting coffee, so as to maintain such visual interaction. In the design of the seating area, the designer abandons unnecessary modeling and material superposition, uses a more concise way to express the furniture statically, keeps a good relationship between vision and taste, and expounds the rhythm of the space. The interaction between sitting and action creates a good relationship with everyone. The central bar is cut horizontally, and the separation allows the dynamic and static behavior of customers to be separated. The middle bar is cut horizontally to separate the customer behavior.

In the design of tables and chairs, designers give up a lot of cumbersome design language, simple geometric modeling shows a strong sense of power under the control of precise proportion. Under the conflict between the elliptical chair made of sound-absorbing cotton and stainless steel, the visual feedback reduces its sense of existence. The design of tables and chairs is more simple and generalizes the modeling language and material. Let customers pay more attention to the product itself. Self service counter is more like a black box, adsorbed on the long table, emphasizing its existence.
